I got to catch a great show last night at the Knitting Factory in NYC billed as "Punk-FunK Harmodelic". The billed line-up was Jamaaladeen Tacuma(b), Marc Ribot(g) & Calvin Weston(d), but when they got onstage, a keyboard player (???) and two sax players joined them, one of whom was John Zorn and the other I didn't recognize. He looked like Dennis Rodman playing the tenor sax! It was a great show from some spontaneous playing outside playing by Zorn to Jamal and Calvin laying down some funky grooves. Jamal is a great player and has his own style when it comes to tearing up the bass. He mixes his classic chromatic runs with large interval leaps on the neck. He is still considered one of the greatest bass players in my book, although many seemed to have forgotten about him. One CD by Jamal to check out is his DIW release called "Dreamscape". They will be playing at the Knitting Factory again on April 2nd.
